cause wherever you go, i go. i left the keys behind. other three deputies were handcuffed to their prisoners, too. say, whatever happened to them law men? i wish i knew, knife, because if i did, i might be taking you to abilene to stand trial for murder instead of just robbery. ok boss! i got him! rex craig! you, an outlaw. that's right, partner, and a good one. how's the driver? don't worry, he ain't dead, boss, just out cold. good. hide out horses in the usual place. knife and i can take care of this hombre. hurry up! get him out of there! ♪ stage coach, tonto.

ha ha ha. when a man gets to be my age, it takes more than a mask to scare him. if you were here to do me hurt, you'll do it, mask ro no mask. if you were here peacable, ain't none of my business why you're wearing a mask. i'm here peacable. draw up a chair and sit. i'm looking for some information. ain't got much of that. glad to give you what i got. you live here alone? sure do, mister. ain't budged offa this land for twenty years. ever since i bought it to dig for gold. t'weren't no gold though. i see. you're a miner then. i used to be. not no more. you ever have visitors? sure do. ha ha! here's one right now! no, i mean others. talk clear, young feller. a stage coach was held up about a mile from here. i think its passengers are being hidden nearby. you don't say.
shouldn't be hard to find. ain't many places around here for a man to hide. i know that; that's what i can't understand. how can three deputies in a row disappear right off the face of the earth? and now maybe a fourth. i take it you're a law man yourself. sometimes. you better be on your guard in case those outlaws show up. ha ha ha! i ain't so old i can't handle a gun against them varmints. i hope you're right. take care of yourself, your feller. adios. what you find out, kimosabe? nothing, tonto, just a quaint old who wouldn't hurt a fly. we'll ride into town and see what we can find out. let's go. you can come up now, boys. he's gone.
how's the new deputy doing? not so good. had to slug him again to keep him quiet. come on uncle taffy, get out your file and go to work on these cuffs. sick of being chained to this dead weight. hold your horses, knife. it's a lucky thing you spotted that masked hombre headed this way uncle taffy. he might have caught us red handed. you shoulda' let me plug him, boss, before he ever got inside. you're a fool, knife. how do we know there weren't others with him. this way he leaves without suspecting anything. that's right! thinks i'm just a simple-minded old timer. wouldn't have no truck with outlaws. heh heh heh. hurry it up, uncle taffy. he's coming to. there you are. what is this place?
ha ha ha! you hear that, boys? he wants to know what this place is. well i'll tell you, son. it's a trap! a death trap! what're you gonna do to me? the same thing we did to those other three deputies. heh heh! you see? so that's where you got rid of them. makes a real fine death trap, don't you think? dark and deep! listen i don't get it, craig. you of all people. what have you got against law and order? law and order means two bosses in town: the marshal and me. there's only room enough for one of us. you'll never get rid of him that way. won't i? just give me time. come on now; he's lived long enough. any last messages, parker? too bad i can't ever tell your kid where you're buried.
partner, marshal. is he still missing? same as the others. anything i can do to help? i don't need a lawyer, rex. i need a new deputy. ha ha, afraid i'm not that brave, marshal. can't blame you, there isn't a man in town willing to take parker's place. well, if you need me, you know where my office is. thanks rex. ♪ ♪ ♪
♪ what're you so sad about, marshal? you didn't get hurt. jimmy, what're you doing with that gun? i'm gonna give you the same medicine my father got. you gone crazy. kid? don't move. jimmy, i didn't do anything to your father. no, you just sent him out to be killed, that's all. we have no proof that he's dead. we don't need proof. he's gone like all the others, isn't he? finest man in the whole town. he didn't have to take the job, but you made him. jimmy, your father volunteered to be one of my deputies. he was just as anxious to bring law and order to this town as i am. law and order... all you've brought is trouble and killing. i'm not to blame for that. the outlaws are. i don't know who's to blame. i only know i'm not going to let it happen again. it was better without law and order. and i'm getting rid of you right now! hey, lemme go! thanks mister for coming in when you did. fine marshal you are, saying thanks to a masked outlaw. he can't be an outlaw.
outlaws don't waste their time saving the lives of marshals. still, i'm curious about that mask. i have reasons for keeping my identity a secret, marshal. you're quite a fighter, young man. you'll have to excuse him, mister. he's kinda wrought up. his father's one of my deputies. disappeared this morning. now take it easy, jimmy. sorry, marshal. i guess killing you wouldn't bring my dad back. was his father the man who was taking knife morton back to abilene? yes, my fourth deputy. when did this trouble start? the day i took over, injun. this was here when i opened this place three months ago. "if you know what's good for you, you will go back where you came from. if you don't, we'll drag you back. we're the law and order in this town." and it's unsigned. but if they want to get rid of you why don't they kill you? that's the funny part of it: they don't kill anybody, that is, that i can prove. what about your four deputies? where are the bodies? you've got to have a corpse to have a murder charge. you don't have any idea who's behind these crimes?
somebody that's so smart and slippery i can't lay a finger on them. did they try to rescue any criminal you send to abilene with a deputy? so far they have. you have idea, kimosabe? yes, tonto. that is, if the marshal can find a new deputy. no chance. after what's just happened there isn't a man in this town that's got nerve enough to take on the job. there's one, marshal. oh, jimmy, you're too young. i'm old enough to ride a horse and fire a gun. if you won't let me be your deputy, i'll go after those outlaws alone. what do you think? he wants to go on a manhunt? why not let him help us? thanks, mister. jim, this isn't going to be any picnic. if my plan works your life is going to be in great danger. whatever happened to those other four deputies might happen to you. my father died to bring law and order to this town. his death won't mean much if i don't follow through for him. good boy, jim. now marshal, here's my plan... put up hand! what is this? me take money. on your feet, injun!
trying to hold me up, huh? what happened marshal? who's the injun? saw me coming out of the bank, tried to hold me up. why the no good injun, we ought to string him up! oh no you don't! i'm here to keep the law, not break it. he'll be sent to abilene for trial. who's going to take him, marshal? i thought you'd run clean out of deputies. not quite, rex. i got a new one this morning. who are you, indian? me not tell. have it your own way. reckon a lawyer wouldn't help him much anyway, what with you catching him red-handed. oh, he's entitled to a legal advisor, rex. better drop around later and see him. whatever you say, marshal. come on, injun. get going. i've got a nice warm cell for you.
where's the marshal? him go out for lunch. oh? well, might as well talk to you now anyway. who you? i'm a lawyer. if you want advice, i can give it to you. me not need advice. i think you do. that was a pretty stupid stunt today: trying to hold up a marshal. me not see him badge. you work alone or with a gang? that my business. look indian. i'm going to do some straight talking. but if you repeat a word of it to the marshal or anyone else, i'll call you a liar and swear i didn't say it. and they'll believe me, not you. me not understand. it's like this: we've got no judge in this town, so you'll be taken to abilene for trial. if you're lucky, you may get off with twenty years. that plenty long time. you should have thought of that before you held up the marshal.
maybe there other way out? you're smart, indian. there is a way. an... expensive way. what you mean? if you never get to abilene then you can't be tried. that plenty good plan. you have way it can work? i have. but it costs money. how much? a thousand dollars. that plenty big sum. mm. well, you got any friends around here that can raise the money for you? there one maybe can help. good, tell me where he is and i'll get word to him. no, him know me need help. he better, because if that money isn't in my office tonight, you'll be in abilene by tomorrow. money be there. if this is a hold up, mister, i keep my money in the bank, not here. it's no hold up. i'm here on business. i don't usually do business with masked men. if it's legal services you need ... what's that for? fee for your legal services.
i understand you can arrange for a certain indian friend of mine not to reach abilene tomorrow. i don't know what you're talking about. i don't take bribes. i must have misunderstood. just a minute. like i said: i'm strickly legal. you want to hire me to be your friend's lawyer and get your friend off as lightly as possible i reckon i could accept that money as a... retainer in advance. a retainer, then. do you guarantee to get my friend off lightly? i'm a respectable lawyer, mister. you don't think i'd take your money under false pretenses. just how and when do you intend to do this? that's my business. you pay the fee, i'll be the lawyer. whatever you say. knife! yeah, boss? you know that was that just left? voice sounded mighty familiar through the door. it should. he was a masked man from uncle taffy's cabin. him? what'd he want with you? wanted to pay me a thousand dollars to keep that indian from reaching abilene. i don't get it. i do. a neat little put-up job, the whole thing. the masked man and indian are in cahoots with
the marshal. you mean they know about uncle taffy's cabin? no, but they're trying awfully hard to find out. that means they're expecting us to hold up the stage tomorrow. we can't do it. can't we? it's a clever little trap they've set. only one thing wrong: they're the ones who are gonna get caught in it!
outlaws strike?se head when don't worry, tonto. you give the orders; i'll take them. s part well. oh, you can count on the kid, alright. this where they held the stage up last time? just about. they may not strike in the same place twice. here they come. sounds like it's down the road about a mile, i'd say. think you're right, marshal. come on! ♪
♪ exactly the same as last time, marshal: driver unconscious, but not dead. i only hope we can catch them before anything happens to tonto and jimmy. it's a funny thing, but these tracks lead directly north. there's nothing there except uncle taffy's cabin. uncle taffy... maybe he isn't such a loveable character after all. come on, marshal. ♪ ♪ you keep promise plenty good. me go free now? no indian, you don't go free. as soon as your masked friend gets here, you and he are going to get the same medicine as the kid. tonto, he knows! that's right, junior; i know. you got it straight what you're to do now? i never make mistakes, but are you sure the masked man is coming? positive. either alone or with the marshal. they lost our tracks, but i made sure they knew which direction to take.
what about them two? we'll keep them hidden in back of the cabin. ha ha! neatest trick i ever heard of. this masked man is smart, uncle taffy. he may not disappear as easily as the others. leave him to me; i can handle him. now get outside, all of ya! ♪ ♪ ♪ looks harmless enough. maybe, marshal. i'll go in there alone. if it's a trap there should be one of us left alive to bring back a posse. well if you're not out in a few minutes, i'll sneak around back and see what i can find out. right. ♪ ♪ the door's open. how did you know i was out there? heh heh heh... reckon you might say i got eyes in the back of my head.
what can i do for ya this time? you can tell me what's become of my indian friend and the deputy. how would i know? the coach was held up less than a mile away. just like the last time. the tracks led in this direction, just like last time. got no idea what you're talking about. you're shielding outlaws. that's a crime in itself. you'd better give them up. if you think so bad of me, young man, why don't you take me into town, turn me over to the marshal? i intend to. but first i'm taking a look around. go right ahead. i'm going to tie you up so you can't give any alarm. don't mind a bit. come on ahead.
ha ha ha! that'll take care of you, mister! come on in, boys. he's joined the others. you sure he's dead? ain't no doubt about it. i heard him hit bottom. then get the handcuffs off these two. we can't drop them down the shaft together. in't done such good business in years! ha ha! that does it, boss. drop the indian in first, then the kid. let him go. let him go! ooh! ow! ♪
don't you worry, tonto. i aim to make him a permanent fixture here if he'll stay. i sure will, marshal. well you don't need us anymore. tonto, we'll be moving. good luck, jim. marshal. thanks mister. that masked man sure came through when we needed him most. he usually does, son. do you know who he is? that's the lone ranger. hi-ho silver! away! ♪ ♪ @d♪ hdhd hd hd hd @d hd
